Singer Leona Lewis was signing autographs and posing for photographs at a book signing in London on Wednesday when, according to her spokesman, a young man punched her in the head. According to Stuart Bell, Lewis was meeting fans at Waterstone’s book store in Piccadilly for about 90 minutes when a man from the line hit her. The man was led away by security and later arrested. Bell said Lewis went to see a doctor as a precaution. A 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and is in custody, said London’s Metropolitan police.
A nude image of 10-year-old Brooke Shields has been replaced at Britain’s Tate Modern museum. The museum closed a room housing the “Spiritual American 1983” photograph after a visit two weeks ago by a London police unit that deals with obscenity. The museum released a statement Wednesday that the piece was replaced with a later version of the work by Richard Prince called “Spiritual America IV 2005.” That photo features the actress in a bikini taken in 2005.
